Formation of scarsAfter the skin is wounded, there is a break in the body's tissues. As a result, the body produces more of a protein called collagen to promote the skin's healing process. Collagen builds up where the tissue has been damaged, helping to heal and strengthen the wound. For a certain period, new collagen continues to form and blood supply increases, causing the scar to become raised, lumpy and red. Some collagen then breaks down at the site of the wound, the blood supply reduces and the scar gradually becomes smoother, softer and paler.
Types of scarsKeloid scars are the result of an overly aggressive healing process. They extend beyond the original injury. Over time, a keloid scar may hamper movement. Treatments include surgery to remove the scar, steroid injections, or silicone sheets to flatten the scar.
Hypertrophic scars are scars that can be described as raised, red scars that are similar to keloids but do not go beyond the boundary of the injury. Treatments include injections of steroids to reduce inflammation or silicone sheets, which flatten the scar.
Contracture scars are results of burning. These scars tighten skin, which can impair your ability to move. Contracture scars can also go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves.
Pitted or atropic scars are those that have a sunken appearance, sometimes known as ice-pick.
Acne scars are the result of acne or breakouts and can range from deep pits to scars that are angular or wavelike in appearance. Treatment options depend on the types of acne scars that appear on the skin.
